The Russian war in Ukraine has been accompanied, fueled, and legitimized by an unprecedented information campaign. Russia's propaganda has been surprisingly successful in distorting the war and the way it is perceived and understood. This special inaugural issue of JSPPS launches an interdisciplinary discussion of the Russian war of information being waged in tandem with the military war in Ukraine.
Fedor's book Russia & the Cult of State Security (2012) has filled a historiographical gap.... The author gives us the keys necessary for decoding these... discourses and, beyond that, the worldview of these men, an indispensable method for gaining knowledge of the Soviet past but also, in Putin's Russia, for understanding the Russian present. Andrei Kozovoi, University of Lille 3
